"The Burned House Resurrects is a collection of poems woven together by childhood influences of Japanese culture, fables, spirituality, and nature that repurpose pain never dealt with. ZenChristian Mott re-visits memories and feelings she never acknowledged or analyzed and works to make sense of them in the here and now. Through crafting reflection and release into a metaphorical language readers can touch, ZenChristian takes readers on an immersive journey through her childhood. These poems create a timeline of the events of her life that contributed to the woman she is today, and offers readers to relate themselves in her allegorical introspection."-Aubrey Diaz
